                                                 changing times
                                                  Bob Dylan once penned, “For the times they are a-changin’.”
                                                  Never has this been truer for the forestry community than now.
With accelerated technology, alternative markets for forest thinnings, and multi-use forestry considerations, this
is definitely not your grandparent’s forest profession. Come to a conference for foresters, created by foresters,
to see how you can keep up with these changing times.
